It’s time for another edition of ‘I don’t know what to post and I’m in a slump so here’s a book tag!’ Ok, but in my defence, the lovely Layla recently created this tag and it’s just so good that I knew we had to take part! It has also inspired us to try out creating our own tag so keep an eye out for that! Fan art credits will be linked at the end of the post! So without further ado, here’s our answers – Continue reading “THE OSEMAN VERSE BOOK TAG!”
The greatest games in Godsgrave’s history have ended with the most audacious murders in the history of the Itreyan Republic.
Mia Corvere, gladiatii, escaped slave and infamous assassin, is on the run. Pursued by Blades of the Red Church and soldiers of the Luminatii legion, she may never escape the City of Bridges and Bones alive. Her mentor Mercurio is now in the clutches of her enemies. Her own family wishes her dead. And her nemesis, Consul Julius Scaeva, stands but a breath from total dominance over the Republic.
But beneath the city, a dark secret awaits. Together with her lover Ashlinn, brother Jonnen and a mysterious benefactor returned from beyond the veil of death, she must undertake a perilous journey across the Republic, seeking the final answer to the riddle of her life. Truedark approaches. Night is falling on the Republic for perhaps the final time.
Can Mia survive in a world where even daylight must die?
So after Angharad recently shared her favourite books from her collection, I thought it was about time I shared mine too. I have so many certain editions of books that are really special to me that it was hard to narrow it down, so I decided to mostly choose collectors or special editions for this post.
Magic has a price—if you’re willing to pay.
Born into a family of powerful witchdoctors, Arrah yearns for magic of her own. But each year she fails to call forth her ancestral powers, while her ambitious mother watches with growing disapproval.
There’s only one thing Arrah hasn’t tried, a deadly last resort: trading years of her own life for scraps of magic. Until the Kingdom’s children begin to disappear, and Arrah is desperate to find the culprit.
She uncovers something worse. The long-imprisoned Demon King is stirring. And if he rises, his hunger for souls will bring the world to its knees… unless Arrah pays the price for the magic to stop him.
Thank you to HarperVoyager for sending me a proof copy!
Is it just me or did August fly by? It’s scary how quickly this year is going however, that does mean we’re going into my favourite time and season of the year! I’m so excited for it all to get cosy again so I can stop living in a constant ball of sweat. Lovely imagery, I know. Ok, so this month I managed to read 12 books. Not as many as last month but I’m still happy. It would have been thirteen but I did DNF one book this month which is actually rare for me but something I need to start doing more often. So here’s what I read in the month of August! – Continue reading “Angharad’s August 2019 Wrap Up”
Can anyone else not quite believe it’s September already?!
I had a great reading month in August making my way through ARCs. Although my original TBR went right out the window, I did beat my goal for the month and found some books I loved!
Here’s what I read last month:
YALC may have been a month ago, but it’s never too late for a wrap up, right?
This was my third year attending YALC and as always, although I’ve come away with mixed feelings about the event and certain frustrations, I had the best time seeing bookish friends, some of who I only get to see each year at YALC!
